Some Facts about
the current PRS President,
Obadiah S. Harris, Ph.D.
Obadiah S. Harris, Ph.D., currently President of The Philosophical Research Society (PRS) founded in 1934 by Manly P. Hall). In 2001 he founded the University of Philosophical Research (UPR), which offers only online accredited graduate studies programs. After proclaiming himself President of the university in 2001 he donated the famous PRS research library of some 30,000 volumes to his own university.  Recently he decided to sell the property where Manly Hall had built his priceless research library as well as a 300 seat lecture hall and administrative offices so that the people could could visit the ancient texts, art and artifacts, and study the wisdom of all ages. The Friends of the PRS feel that the donation of the PRS library to this university and the attempted sale of the landmark property near Griffith Park will make it impossible for the public to access Mr. Hall's legacy.
Dr. Harris had been a minister ordained by Dr. Ernest Holmes, (Church of Religious Science). He received his Ph.D. in Education from the Univ. of Michigan, Dept. of Community Education. He later served as an Assoc. Prof. and Dir. of Regional Center for Community Education at Arizona State University.
